    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think i found how im gonna display botique hotel on my street: as a straight between PR and pet shop. It actually works as a straight building since it takes up about 28 studs of horizontal space on the side, more than downtown diner does. Since pet shop is also short it helps blend the height with other modulars. And next to parisian the other side of the building isn't completley hidden. I personally think the layout makes more sense this way than as a corner.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah, honestly I agree. I think this is better than parisian restaraunt. Theres a lot of really bold choices in here, and some people may not like them (color choices, the unique layout that limits its displayability with other modulars ) but I think (in a vaccum) it results in the most visually appealing modular they've done. The color scheme is really nice, the details are very intricate and even extend around the back, and the interior is great and has a lot of nice builds. The best part is the architectural style, very inspired. Only criticisms is the plam tree is just okay, and I wish the building was 2 bricks taller.

    Do you have the ldd file? I'm planning on extending the height by 2-3 bricks to be "standard" modular height. Its too short imo.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Aanchir has been documenting the floor area space of each modular, and apparently botique hotel has the most floor area out of any modular that's not town hall or assembly square, despite the shape making it appear smaller. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Uvy5XSmGY_8Y9iPLYTtqNEsbbF0acRgY0MEhH1RMbhI/htmlview The first floors actually pretty big. https://i.imgur.com/DGKDao4.jpg I guess its easy to forget that even though the older modulars were bigger on the outside, they had things like big holes in the floor on grand emporium, or only having 2 floors on sets like fire brigade

    REVIEW: 71741 Ninjago City Gardens

    Molded the second level of ninjago city gardens to be structurally stable. For those not in the know: if you pick up this level on one side in the official set it will snap in half. Middle is too flimsy, fixed that here. Added some greenery to cover up the extra structure, I think the layout makes more sense this way anyways cause now the tree has an area to grow out of and its not just sticking out of a gap.

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    My biggest criticism is how the layout is essentially the same as ninjago city but with a gap in the middle instead of the side. Could have been more imaginative. I would have preferred a straight section like this: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ab/ea/9c/abea9cb50b37ae0e587afeb3023262a3.jpg

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Very briefly before it retired, i got it last year for $209 USD (normally $300)

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Im mildly irritated that theres 3 blue lanterns on the left and 2 on the right Also it looks pretty good, although a bit too similar to ninajgo city for me. Reminds me of MOCS of ninjago city extensions that almost just color swapped ninjago city instead of coming up with new layout ideas.

    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Wasn't interested in Speed Champions before because i thought the cars at that 6 wide scale were awkward and cartoonish. 8 wide should be the standard for all lego vehicles imo. Its so much better, you can get more accurate details and proportions and fit 2 minifigs in. I think its more accurately scaled for minfigs too. Not for height obviously, but width. 6 wide is way too narrow for 2 minifigs to sit in. And its just weird seeing a cramped inside area on older speed champion cars with room for only 1 seat. Just pretend everyone in lego world is 4 feet tall, cause honestly the way minifigs are proportioned they would be pretty damn short in real life.

    It seems that lepin is going to copy MOC designs

    Sorry for the big bump, but this is awful. This "company" is so shitty. Especially since you're trying to make money off your work and they're most likely circumventing potential buyers. One of the many reasons I'm never buying a product of theirs despite how much cheaper they are. Shame on people who support them. And chinas gotta get their shit together and prevent "companies" like this who exist purely by stealing other peoples intellectual property from existing.

    What did you buy today?

    Got Ninjago City for $209. There was a Walmart discount for $229, and some random guy on reddit had a $20 discount coupon for the first person who commented and I was first. Thanks guy. Cant wait to build it! Might make an extension moc.

    Probably the next one will be Parisian Restaurant. Although we said the same thing last year.

    [MOC] Modular Modern District

    Amazing. Super unique style, and I like the asymmetry on the left building and the curved shape of the building on the right. The foliage is well done too! Its nice to see that the back is highly detailed as well. I like how it hinges open. The interior is very clean and nice. What software did you use to render this? It looks even better than stud.io's renders. Its extremely convincing, the only thing that gives it away is looking at some curved surfaces and seeing polygons (like on the brick at the right in the kitchen image).

    [REVIEW] 75810 - The Upside Down

    The show is actually very popular. It should be a hit for collectors. And its not lego ideas.

    [REVIEW] 75810 - The Upside Down

    Id like to see a size comparison of it next to a modular to get an idea of how good its value in terms of volume is

    Yup, its definitely that. You can see it from this render. Super clever technique!

    2019 LEGO Architecture

    Howd they make the stairs? They seem like a new piece. Theyre not the 1x2 brick with grill, cause its clearly a perfect stair pattern instead of that grill texture. Seems like its a new slope piece with a stair pattern. Edit: Seems like it could be these panel parts stacked sideways https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=30413#T=P

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    Lloyds mech is a day 1 for me. Looks awesome. Might be one of my favorite mechs from lego, rivaling the ninjago movie fire mech and Voltron. So good.
  20. Looks good, but not $200 good. That price is kinda bonkers. Overall size feels like $150 max. Theres so many tiny pieces that make up that 1700 piece count.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm more talking about overall appearance than build complexity. Town Hall does look very City (and so does fire brigade), but but grand emporium and green grocer have a certain realism and believability in their design that isn't there with corner garage. For all the cool techniques they used to make the façade, it still looks a bit vanilla and bland in comparison to older modulars.Theres not an interesting visual hook to it in my opinion outside of the angled wall.
  22. chezzymann

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I just want something with interesting architecture and a good size. Corner garage was close to this due to the great first floor design and finally going back to a larger building size, but the façade on the second and third floors was just not interesting enough for me. A bit too basic and "CITY". And it was kinda small. They've gone away from intricate, unique facades lately and I don't like it.

    [MOC] Book Hop, a used book store

    This is Book Hop. It was going to be called Book Shop, but I ran out of space for the S on the sign and went with Hop instead. I think its more unique anyways. It took me a while to make this, worked on and off for a few weeks in stud.io. Not including the time waiting for bricklink orders. And then another couple weeks tweaking things and adding stuff in real life. Its around 3000 pieces. Hope you enjoy! Exterior: First floor: I wanted to separate each section by genre. Theres romance, sci fi, cooking, and graphic novels. See if you can guess which is which. I made sure to have studs on the floor so you can pose minifigs easily. (Excuse the hairs I have a dog and its super hard to remove all of them). Second floor: Its a starbucks style café. I really wanted a big bathroom for some reason so that's a thing. Better angle of the café. I'm planning on adding stickers for a menu on the brown tiles eventually. Magazine area with a comfy couch. Third floor: Its an apartment. This was done freestyle with spare parts, unlike the rest of the building which was designed in stud.io. Demolished some mixels and lakeside lodge to make it. Lower angle. Managed to cram a shower area into a small space. Just barely!

    Overwatch 2019 - Rumors & Discussion

    Didnt like bastions proportions. Felt like the torso area was too small. So I broadened the shoulders by 1 stud each, and increased the arm/gun length by 2 studs. Also, slimmed up the legs a bit. Thoughts? It can still transform into turret mode fine.

    REVIEW: 75974 Bastion

    Not a fan of how chunky the leg armor is. Its a lot thinner in game and the green kneee pads can fold up to be flush with the legs, but here they are forced to hang down. Might have to mod the legs to be a bit thinner.
